answering calls and doing the same thing over and over again for hours every damn day would make you lose everything you have studied and would definitely make you feel stupid.. dont yah agree with me?

i don't think stupid is the proper word. but it's more so they will lose connection to their fields they went through in college. but call center jobs are good jobs especially to people who have a long rope of patience and courtesy. it's an honest field and a respectful one, too.

Yes and no. Call center may make the educated people fool but its also true other way round. People dont make the call centre jobs as thier career and leave them after a couple of years. Call center job are an avenue for them to earn and support their needs towards the fulfilment of their ambitions.

yes. one studies hard for a degree and then just ends up being in a call center where in you just do the same thing over and over again, which is not related to his/her chosen field at all. though i don't think the agents are stupid.. i think the work itself makes the brain cells shrink..
